A Regular Polygon with 96 sides: Area, Perimeter, Interior and Exterior Angles, Inradius, Circumradius



A regular polygon with 96 sides where the length of each side is 2 units. The units may either be inches or cm or km or miles: any unit of length.

You are given a Regular Polygon with 96 sides. What are the interior angles and exterior angles? 
If the length of each side is 2 units, what is the perimeter, area, circum-radius and in-radius of the polygon?

n = 96

Perimeter of a polygon with 96 sides = (side length) x 96 = 192 units

Area of a polygon with 96 sides = (n x Sidecot (Π/n))/4 = (n x 2cot (Π/96))/4 = 2932.49 square units

Sum of the interior angles of a polygon with 96 sides = 
 (n-2) x 180 degrees =  (96-2) x 180 degrees = 16920 degrees

Interior Angle of a polygon with 96 sides = (n-2) x 180/n degrees = (96-2) x 180/96 degrees = 176.25 degrees 

Exterior angle of a polygon with 96 sides = 180 - Interior Angle = 180 - 176.25 = 3.75 degrees

Inradius = Radius of In-circle = (side length) x cot (Π/96) = 2 x cot 1 = 61.09 units

Circumradius = Radius of Circum-circle = (side length) x cosec (Π/96) = 2 x cosec 1 degrees = 61.12 units

Symmetry Group = D96  96 rotational symmetries and 96 reflection symmetries. The "D" stands for di-hedral.
